With lockdown policies in place in most countries due to the Corona pandemic our impact on the environment becomes more apparent each day. With people isolating at home, not travelling, and planes staying on the ground nature seems to recover from pollution: clear canals in Venice, reduced air pollution in China and major cities all over the world, and a fallen global carbon emission. Still, climate change has not stopped, with a record heatwave in Antarctica, which has impacts on all of our planet's climate, and countries like Germany, which are usually blessed with a lot of rain, facing droughts. Realizing how our own actions can positively or negatively affect our environment is a wakeup call for everyone, as we cannot deny the positive impacts of the lockdown on our environment. So, as the official motto of Earth Day 2020 is climate action, we want to discover what technologies may help us in stopping climate change and creating a better future.

60 seconds about space travel

If we get to Mars, will we ever come back? Retired Astronaut Nicole Stott about crucial space-questions.

Nicole Stott is a retired NASA astronaut turned artist. She spent several months at the International Space Station - and so we spoke to her about space travel. We kept it brief.

She speaks about international cooperation in multi-planetary settlements, permanent presence on the moon, travelling to Mars and staying there and preserving life on earth. And discusses if we will be so stupid to destroy our planet.

This is the first video in our new series "60 seconds with..." in which we very briefly discuss a topic with an interesting person.
